NCAA Tournament: LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds vs. Michigan State Spartans

Draymond Green scored 24 points in a triple-double, Derrick Nix added 18 points and top-seeded Michigan State fought off the upset bug that took down two No. 2 seeds in the NCAA tournament, advancing in the West Regional with an 89-67 win over LIU Brooklyn on Friday night. The Spartans (28-7) finally put away the pesky No. 16 Blackbirds (25-9) with a 14-4 run midway through the second half. Michigan State will play Saint Louis in the third round Sunday. Green added 12 rebounds and 10 assists. The Big Ten’s player of the year also provided some encouraging — and a few choice — words for his teammates in the second half when LIU was giving the Spartans all they could handle. Jamal Olasewere scored 17 for LIU.
